October is Liver Cancer Awareness Month, and our #OctoberIs4Livers campaign, launched in 2018, is the first and only global campaign dedicated to public awareness, policy, education, and clinical practice needs to prevent and manage liver cancer. Designed to span the globe to improve health outcomes for liver cancer patients, the #OctoberIs4Livers campaign aims to rally stakeholders in creative and impactful ways to support the countless individuals who have heard the

terrifying words “you have liver cancer.”

The campaign’s success in its first five years has created a strong platform, bringing the liver cancer community—patients, survivors, caregivers, advocates, experts, and others—together to increase the global dialogue about liver cancers. We have something for everyone! You bring the passion, and we’ll give you the tools to change the world for liver cancer patients.
